Survive CP

  • October 23, 2016

  • 4:00pm - 6:00pm

  • Nyumburu Amphitheater

GET HYPED because your friends at the Taiwanese American Student Association and the Filipino Cultural Association are holding our annual SurviveCP race! SurviveCP is our own spinoff of SurviveDC. Every year we invade campus and play a massive-multiplayer, zombie-based tagging game.

~~~SIGN UP~~~
***Deadline to signup is October 21st***
FREE SIGN UP HERE: www.ter.ps/survivecp
Sign up to volunteer here: www.ter.ps/volunteerz
Tell your kids, tell your wife. Let’s do this!

~~~RULES~~~
The rules are simple. You will sign up as a team of three or we can assign you to one. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to navigate through the campus to each roadblock and complete the task at the location. After you and your team complete the tasks, you will be able to proceed to the finish line and take home gold!
However, it’s not as easy as you think: there will also be zombies looking to tag you out of the game everywhere on the map. After a 5 minute immunity period from start, the zombies have free reign. If you get tagged you will join the zombie team. Weaponry not included.
TLDR: Reach every checkpoint while avoiding zombies.
This is a fun way to get out of your dorm and compete with your friends or just have a good time! We can’t wait to see you!!!
Godspeed my comrades.

Contact Elton H Tian or Gabby Enguillado if you have any questions :)
